Digital Ally Open 2016 – Excitement from Start to Finish

The Digital Ally Open came to Overland Park August 4th through the 8th.  Champion Wesley Bryan prevailed in a three-man playoff that capped a week of fun and excitement.   Bryan actually ended up taking home three items during the award ceremony on the 18th green following play – his trophy, first place winner’s check, and a brand new PGA Tour card by way of winning his third title this season on the Web.com Tour.
